Well what can I say.  Whilst building up the new esc and brushless 17.5t motor.
I checked and double checked my connections. Everything checks out A ok.
Plug battery in Flash pop and one of the caps has blown...Arhhh.   
Will give it another go tomorrow but its probably dead....
 Tried to get the usb Hobbyking adaptor to work. Christ what a pain in the a**e.. Still trying 2 and a half hours later....

Oops...

Check you have right program card, as there are several types for the different HobbyKing/Turnigy ESC's. It's not always immediately clear which is the correct one on the website. Ask me how I know this  ::)

Also my GenII program box needs Win7 and doesn't work on my Vista PC, so another thing to check...

I've stripped the combo out of the bike. I have the USB adaptor so I've plugged that in and also had to download the Hobbywing program for it. The Hobbyking program just won't recognize the USB adaptor.

 Hey presto. I checked the program and flashed the ESC with the blinky or 0 setting program front & brake only program.
  Well it runs but has problems. not sure if its the ESC or second-hand 17.5 motor.
 
  1 Throttle up and brake and its seems not as fast as my Brushed standard spec g20 Jimlee supplied.

  2 Sometimes when I throttle up nothing...  but if I turn the motor 1/4 turn bang off we go!!! That's why I suspect the motor.

Sounds suspiciously like a sensor cable problem.
